Gov. Noem’s Teacher Compensation Bill Becomes Law  


PIERRE, S.D. The bill to enhance teacher compensation, SB 127, became law today. The bill establishes a minimum teacher salary and revises the requirements pertaining to average teacher compensation.  


We’ve all seen the amazing impact a great teacher can have on a student’s future,” said Governor Noem. “We are making sure our teachers receive the pay that they rightly deserve for all the great work they do.” 


Governor Noem signed the bill in March at the Mitchell High School Library. A photo of that bill signing can be found here.
